Ramanand Sagar's Ramayan, starring Dipika Chikhlia, Arun Govil and Sunil Lahri, once again made history with its re-run during COVID-19 lockdown in 2020. The iconic mythological show aired on Doordarshan in the late 80s has been brought back on television as the shoot of television shows and films have been stalled amid the second wave of Coronavirus. Ramayan will air on Star Bharat at 7 pm every day.
Sharing the news, Dipika, who played the role of Sita in Ramayan, posted a picture from the show on Instagram. She wrote, "So excited to share that Ramayan will be airing on the small screens again this year! Ramayan aired during the lockdown last year, and looks like history is repeating itself. The show has been a huge part of not just my life, but thousands of Indian families for years. Come be a part of our community and share the knowledge of the Ramayan with generations to come. Tune in to Star Bharat everyday at 7pm to watch Ramanand Sagar’s ‘Ramayan’."
Exactly a year ago, that is on April 16, Ramayan garnered more than 77 million views leaving behind The Big Bang Theory and Game of Thrones that had only 18 million and 17.4 million views.
